Back as promised with one of my new favorite Paleo muffin recipes. But a warning….these are addicting! I have found myself eagerly waiting the banana’s to ripen just so I can make another batch of these muffins. Like I said they are addicting! And they even get better the next day….if that’s even possible. If you want to hold off on eating the whole batch right out of the oven, they freeze nicely. That way you can enjoy them another day.
I’m going to keep this short as I am a tired and busy girl trying to get ready for two little girls big 4th birthday party that is quickly approaching. I feel like my list of “to do’s” is growing while my days to do it all is shortening. That seems to always happen, right? I’ll be sure to share the big event over on the kids side of the blog so stay tuned. I’ll be back next week so have a wonderful rest of your week and a fabulous weekend!
Coconut Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1/3 cup canned coconut milk
1 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup coconut flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3 bananas)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, plus additional for sprinkling on tops of muffin
Preheat oven to 400. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, coconut milk, maple syrup, sea salt, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine and set aside.
Sift coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon into the wet ingredients. Whisk vigorously until no lumps remain. Stir in melted coconut oil until well combined. Fold in banana and chocolate chips until incorporated.
Using a large ice cream scoop, add one level scoop to each muffin cup. Sprinkle each muffin with a few additional chocolate chips. Bake muffins for 15 to 18 minutes or until muffins are golden and spring back when pressed gently. Once baked, cool for 10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
Note: I recommend you keep these in a air-tight container and store in the refrigerator to keep fresh longer. When ready to heat just heat up and enjoy.
